These DIY Halloween Labels make it easy to transform ordinary glass jars and bottles into spooky, vintage-style potions. They make fun decorative items that will add a bewitching touch to any Halloween party.

Last year I had an amazing time designing a Legend of Sleepy Hollow theme. And since Ichabod Crane has been depicted as a scientist, apothecary jars just made sense. Creating Vintage Halloween Apothecary Jars for that display was a lot of fun, easy, and extremely inexpensive!

This year I have decided to go for a dark Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland theme and my mind is brimming with brilliant ideas. Including some themed apothecary jar labels (coming soon).
